Common sense, man!

I see gun owners who are capable responsible diligent ...... BUT THEN ALSO see the less then, the ones who leave a loaded pistol ready to go, on the bed stand, in the drawer right where the little one can get to easily!


Just go to a gun range and pay attention. It does not take to long to notice the less then'ers who think guns are fun. Toys to play with for fun. Paying little heed to the safety of others..


Go ahead and think everyone is as safety conscious as you who owns and operates. But in reality, try, yes, looking to the lesser of the user operator is the norm.

Common sense is a low standard of responsible, prudent behavior, that can be expected of an average person in a given culture. It is common sense that this low standard is praiseworthy because it is very often not met. Just about everyone has the knowledge and talent to achieve it, but intent is the problem. Bad intent is very common, and can mess up 'responsible and prudent' completely.

Common Sense is clear fact based thought.

ebacon, there is no doubt that the media influences people. When it come to guns, the gun fanatics use every method, including the media, to influence legislators, retail sellers, private citizens, and any group they can reach

One of the problems is, the anti-gun fanatics do the same thing.

Example, the confusion about the term "assault weapon".

All the mass murderers don't seem a bit confused by their efficacy in perpetrating their crimes.

Repeating NRA talking points?

Wiki: Assault weapon is a term used in the United States to define some types of firearms. The definition varies among regulating jurisdictions, but usually includes semi-automatic firearms with a detachable magazine and a pistol grip, and sometimes other features such as a flash suppressor or barrel shroud.

Now please define anti-gun fanatic.

Agreed.
Should be defined as "high capacity rapid fire tactical firearms", and heavily regulated as the hazardous responsibility they present.

JJ, can you tell me specifically, what "rights" you believe the 2nd amendment, as written in full, grants individuals minus the militia connection?

NEWFOUNDLAND, Pa. — Crown-wearing worshippers clutching AR-15 rifles drank holy wine and exchanged or renewed wedding vows in a commitment ceremony at a Pennsylvania church on Wednesday, prompting a nearby school to cancel classes.

With state police and a smattering of protesters standing watch outside the church, brides clad in white and grooms in dark suits brought dozens of unloaded AR-15s into World Peace and Unification Sanctuary for a religious event that doubled as an advertisement for the Second Amendment.

The church, which has a worldwide following, believes the AR-15 symbolizes the “rod of iron” in the book of Revelation, and encouraged couples to bring the weapons.

Just saw this thread. Don't go to church much, do ya? If you did you'd know that many a call from many a pulpit, including last Sunday in my church, called for action on restriction of guns.
